By Paul Altieri,
Sometimes not being perfect can be liberating. This 1680 is a perfect case in point. For some reason this timepiece has lost its original bracelet. Is that bad? No! It presents you the perfect opportunity to free yourself to put whatever you want on this submariner without the guilt of needing to keep it “100% original”. What suits your personality? The options are limitless: colorful nato, olongapo metal, high-end leather, Everest rubber and on and on. Which will you choose? What will YOUR Rolex 1680 Submariner look like?
This particular 1680 has been recently polished and the case is in excellent shape with the lug bevels nice and clean. The bezel insert appears to be the factory original insert and is in fantastic shape. The original dial is beautiful and the tritium markers and hands are slightly patined that match very well. As mentioned above this piece does not have a bracelet and comes on a complimentary Italian leather strap. This is a fantastic opportunity to show off your personality while still enjoying the quality of a Rolex timepiece. Don’t miss out!
